Could 180MP imaging be heading to the Canon EOS R5? Yes it could, according to a new report.

Firmware updates are usually not a very exciting thing to write about, often just consisting of small updates to support new lens profiles or fix bugs. However, there might just be a big update coming for Canon EOS R5 owners: if rumors are to be believed, then we might see the arrival of pixel shift technology for the first time in a Canon camera.
